Bittrex Listed MimbleWimble Based Grin Crypto

Cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex has listed grin (GRIN), a cryptocurrency, which is focused on enhanced privacy and scalability, Ihodl reports.
Harry Potter-inspired privacy coins Grin and Beam, which are both based on the Mimblewimble protocol, managed to score significantly more website views this January than Monero and Zcash. The two projects appear to be even more private and scalable than their already established competitors, but naysayers still scoff at a possibility of them making it big in the cryptocurrency market.
Following listing on Bittrex, grin succeeded to surge over 20% and at the time of writing, the asset is trading at $5.17 (+22.88%).
Recently, Beam enjoyed a substantial amount of coverage after announcing its forthcoming partnership with Litecoin (the latter also witnessed a 36 price spike due to its foray into the privacy coin niche).
